    What is the relationship of losses to O lineman missing snaps? We were losing one game for every 291 snaps missed by our O Lineman – clearly are biggest problem this season. Thanks for this post Jimmy – only you bring us these gems

      “our” not are…jesus sitko

    One would argue that Locklear was a better player (and far more missed when out) than the Croatian Turnstile.

    Ok, which one of you put a voodoo curse on the Eagles’ o-line? Admit it, whoever you are.

  4. Dez Bryant's Probation Officer says:

    The statistics for missed blocks is strikingly similar to the statistics for missed snaps.

    Should also give a bonus for Dunlap getting injured.

  6. Mike says:

    Does Peters really count when he was out before the start of training camp?

      1. Matthew says:

        If he counts then so should Jammal Brown. Tyler Polumbus was fighting for a job in training camp, then suddenly we were forced to have him be our starter.

          But that would undermine the point the author is trying to make. Don’t you know anything about “journalizin”?

    1. slandog says:

      He was going to be a starter so I’d think that he should.

  7. Mandmeisterx says:

    I wasn’t sure if those were included or not, but deservedly so, if they were.

    1. Mandmeisterx says:

      Reply fail. Clearly aimed at Jeff.

    This post mistakenly infers that Bernadeau and Livings not missing snaps is an advantage.

    I would have typed this sooner, but Free and Smith were holding me.

    1. Haha, wow, a lot of shrapnel there.

  9. ATVCAR says:

    Are these totals due to injury only or include being benched?

    1. Watkins was benched/injured (cough), but when he was healthy again he didn’t find his way back into the lineup. I counted all his missed snaps.

  10. Mandmeisterx says:

    Snaps missed due to sucking don’t count. (Looking at you Danny Watkins)

    1. Jeff says:

      Could say the same for Doug Free.

      1. Jimmer says:

        And Bernadeau. I wish he would have missed some snaps.
